As work has progressed northwest of town, attention has spiked recently at the site of the Bemidji Menards store, partly due to ongoing hiring efforts and the newly placed sign that announcing the business is “opening soon.”
So when is Menards opening?
I traded emails with a spokesman for the company this morning. And he said the business is planned to open in “spring 2011″ which could be, technically, any time after March 20, when spring officially begins.
He went on to write that a press release announcing the store opening will be released “soon.”
FRIDAY MORNING UPDATE: I received an e-mail from the city this morning saying the city has heard the business is planning for an April 4 or April 5 opening, confirming those reports below from blog commenters. Thanks to all!
